Since more than 2000 years diamonds are used as gemstones. But only in the 14th century the targeted processing started. Soon afterwards, the today well known shape, of the diamond was shown. The shape is based on a headed octahedron, through continuous refinement of the faceting the cut developed and finally resulted in the, by Marcel Tolkowsky in 1919, presented brilliant cut. Over centurys the sparkling light play and the „fire“ ,which is the result of the cutting, gave a own symbolism to the headed octahedron. Today, this shape stands for aesthetic, elegance,brilliance and glamour. With Silhouette I wanted to express the symbolism, which is not perceived for the first moment, but awarded by our culture.
